Hāliʻaliʻa Aloha - Eric Lee
 

I laila i ka ʻiu o uka lā
Aia kāua i ka laʻi
Moe aʻe nei i ka ʻolu o nā palai
Ninipo mai kāua lā ʻeā

Moani ke ʻala onaona lā
O ka uluwehi i ka nahele
E hanu iho nei, e hanu lipo a kena
Ninipo mai kāua lā ʻeā

Ke pā mai nei ka ua noe lā
Aheahe ka makani ʻoluʻolu
Huʻihuʻi māʻeʻele i ka ʻili ē
Ninipo mai kāua lā ʻeā

Ke piʻo mai ke ānuenue lā
Mehana hoʻi kāua e ka ua
I ka pilina, i ka pili aloha
Ninipo mai kāua lā ʻeā

Puana ʻia me ke aloha lā
No ka hāli'aliʻa aloha
I laila i ka ʻiu o uka lā
Ninipo mai kāua lā ʻeā
There, in the lofts of the uplands
There you are with me in splendor
We lie in the comforts of the ferns
Together, in love

The sweet fragrance wafts
Of the trees of the forest
Breathe in, breathe deeply to satisfaction
Together, in love

 
The mist descends
The gentle wind blows
Our skin becomes chilled
Together, in love

When the rainbow appears
We are warmed by the rain
In our embrace, in our romance
Together, in love

Sung is my message of love
A song for that time fondly remembered
There, in the lofts of the uplands
Together, in love
